Fussy Baby – Word of the Week

**This post may contain affiliate links.

The word that sums up my week is Fussy. I have one little fussy 14 week old baby on my hands this week. Bless her she doesn’t cry just fusses. Her bottom lip comes out and it’s so cute. 
Word of the Week - Fussy

She has begun her teething journey. We have been going through numerous bibs a day covered in drool. She chews like crazy on her hands and Sophie the Teething Giraffe. She is just little miss fussy pants this week. We have been having lots of cuddles so I haven’t been able to get a lot done at all this week.

Also this week has been a complete turnaround for baby girls sleep pattern. We have been having 6-7 hours sleep for a few weeks. It’s been glorious for me! But now fussy baby girl has been waking at least 3x a night. Like I said before she doesn’t cry, just makes her fussy noises. I pick her up and give her a little dream feed and off she goes back to sleep again. It’s very tiring and draining. 
A few weeks back I heard about an app called The Wonder Weeks and it tells you when your baby is going through her mental development and growth leaps. Baby girl is in one of her leaps now so that explains her fussiness. She is in leap 4 at the moment where the little red baby head is shown in the picture below, and lasts for another 23 days!. This leap is known as the World of Events

After this leap she will be able to perceive smooth transitions with her senses. Like grasping with her hands. This is completely correct as she picked my glasses off my face yesterday and threw them on the floor! She has also started to react to her name and is always looking to see where her dad or I am. These are all new developments.
So there you have the one word that sums up my week – Fussy.

I hope you have all had a better week than me! 

Have a great weekend.

    Bless her, your baby is a similar age to mine (mines 20 weeks) and I use the wonder weeks app too. It's pretty accurate for the most part don't you think? Just when you think you have a routine nailed babies always change and you have to start from scratch. Hope you have had a better week this week. Thanks for sharing with us on #fortheloveofBLOG x

    Hope she (and you) are having a better week, one that's less fussy. But how fab is that app – amazing to have that as guide to refer to. Thanks for linking up to #PoCoLo

  4. Hi Rachel, oh no! Going from six to seven hours sleep a night to waking up three times a night must be a shock to the system, hopefully she'll start to sleep better again at night soon. The Wonder Weeks app must be a handy guide to have, at least you'll have an idea of whether or not little ones behaviour is on par.

    That app is amazing and I wish I had that before! Hope things will be better next week fussiness wise! #wotw #pocolo

    Cool app! Mine are older now but would have been great to get that insight! FYI, the fussiness continues, especially with girls!! xx #fortheloveofBLOG

    Oh fussy. Hmm. Hope the sleep pattern improves soon. How fabulous that she is looking round for you both. Enjoy. #wotw

    Oh I can so relate to those fussy moments – at the age of 2yrs old my daughter had her grandparents peeling peas for her (yes, really!!) What a clever app with lots of info – I could easily become addictive to something like that!
    Enjoy your teething cuddles – in fact, any cuddles are enjoyable!
    Have a good week

    I can relate to those fussy moments that mean your little one is going through growth spurts. #WotW

    Aww! Bless her. Teething is the worst. I hope she is less fussy soon!

    That app does look very informative! I hope your girl is more her normal self again soon, and in the meantime, enjoy the extra cuddles x Thanks for sharing with #WotW
